There are some real benefits to morning exercise.

There is just something about starting your day off with a good fitness routine that can really set a good pace for the day.


One of the benefits to exercise in the morning is that you get it done.

If you are anything like me, putting off fitness until later doesn't always happen. In fact, most times if I don't get it in right away in the morning, it is very unlikely to happen later. Let's face it, life is filled with interruptions, distractions and so many things to do that it makes sense to first exercise.

When you exercise in the morning you are more likely to stick to a routine. A fitness routine is important to lose weight and get healthy. You also tend to eat better when you have exercised in the morning. Who wants to take the time to put in a good workout or a long walk, only to follow it up with a donut? Many times we are more motivated to eat healthier if we have started off the day on the right foot.

You will also find that you have more energy if you exercise in the morning.

It may be difficult initially, getting yourself out of bed but once you do and you exercise, you will feel more energized to take on the day.

Research has also shown that those who exercise in the morning sleep better at night. When you workout later in the day, you cause an adrenalin rush that can be difficult to calm down when it's time to go to sleep.


A final benefit to exercising in the morning is that it puts you in a better mood.

You feel better about yourself and that can create a more positive attitude about life in general. You feel more ready to take on whatever faces you that day.

If fitting in exercise has been difficult, try switching it to the morning and discover the benefits of it. You will be glad you did.
